There's concern for the future of an ageing population in Britain.

A think tank's warned the number of people needing care will soon outstrip the number of young people who could provide it. 

The 'gap' is predicted to reach 1 million by 2030.

Robin Rolls is the director of Outlook Trust, a Christian charity that works with older people.  He told Premier's News Hour they don't just need physical care, they need conversation.
